Annika Pašeta was born in Perú and moved to the US when she was two years old. Her diverse background ignited an interest to learn about different cultures and languages. She is bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish and is currently learning French and Croatian. Annika has always wanted to help others, especially those in developing countries, where people are deprived of basic necessities. She would like to study International Relations and Political Science so she can help impoverished countries. In 2015, she founded The Young Entrepreneur Association of California (YEAcal). She would like to thank her beloved family and friends for their countless support and love.
